Bring the family along to Goat Island to welcome in 2023. Relax and enjoy a picnic dinner while you count down to the 9pm and midnight fireworks. You'll have front row views of these spectacular displays.

You can't buy food or drinks on Goat island, so you'll need to bring your own picnic dinner, snacks and a responsible amount of alcohol. You might also want to pack a picnic rug, torch and a radio, so you can settle in and listen to the NYE broadcast.
